You introduced a package, which forks a security-sensitive package
w/o telling the Security Team about it. If we had noticed this before
the Squeeze release, we would've filed an RC bug.

We've had three DSAs for cyrus-imapd-2.2 since the Squeeze release and
you never contacted us to help prepare updated packages etc.
